Creation of this project was funded by the California State University (CSU) Affordable Learning Solutions program that enables faculty to choose and provide more affordable, quality educational content for their students through strategies and initiatives that aim to ease the adoption process. Currently, nearly every CSU campus has an Affordable Learning Solutions coordinator to help drive the initiative for adoption of OER. Campus affiliates work to increase faculty knowledge of the benefits of OER through workshops, events, and faculty showcases.
This English course textbook, Writing Arguments in STEM, would not be possible without the source material found in different OER repositories. All of the material was compiled allowing for the material to be organized and reviewed for best practices by the curators. We are grateful to the many OER contributing authors who through their involvement in the OER movement allowed us to curate and redistribute their work in this new textbook.
